Of course ... but that's why we want this route-server feature. You enable
that feature with "neighbor <peer-group> route-server-client" and then you
set attributes via "neighbor x.x.x.x attribute-unchanged
[as-path|med|next-hop]" (though) "next hop" is somewhat meaningless).

For clarity sake, this is not specifically their issue. Septempber first 
the european commity will vote on new patent laws for software, ideas 
and business models. If the vote is in favour of the new laws, it's 
effectively the end any open software and even small to medium sized 
software company. Imagine (for example) to verify the quagga code base 
against several millions of patents. Ever read a patent?

Anyway, out of protest against the proposed European laws
http://www.liberouter.org/
has closed it's web-site, as was called for by FFII/Eurolinux and as 
many organizations have indeed done. Have a look at
http://swpat.ffii.org/
Maybe something for quagga to consider as well? It will almost certainly 
influence the project.

[quagga-users 340] BGP timers

Hello!

	Have downloaded and installed quagga 0.96.2 under FreeBSD 4.8. My 
traditional bgp configuration has timers bgp 60 120 values. When I try 
to use this values with quagga, found it uses 40 and 120 values! Have 
tested different values and found that keepalive timer should be 3 times 
smaller then holdtime timer. Is this OK?

P.S. And what are the problems with site? I see

Yes it will, I am currently working on the port and it shall be

If you need any help, I'm willing to assist. I have a several of -STABLE
and -CURRENT machines on i386 and sparc64 platforms that we could test
with. They're currently runnign zebra and I plan on migrating them to
quagga in any case.

And if you ever decide to make a NetBSD pkgsrc port, I can test it on a
DecStation 5000/25 (An R3000 CPU) :-)

That could be useful. I'll contact you after I move. Thanks

Go for it, I don't have much interest for netbsd lately.

[quagga-users 345] OSFP with Ring Network

Hi All,

I have a network of six nodes that are connected together in a loop, so
that each node has two links out of it. ie.

A <=> B <=> C <=> D <=> E <=> F <=> A

Obviously this also means that for the "opposite" node in the ring a node
has two equal paths to the opposite node. ie. C wants to talk to F, it can
go  C -> D -> E -> F or C -> B -> A -> F.

Assuming that the physical layer is stable and the links are always up I
need to ensure that my routing table is stable also. IE. for consecutive
packets from C -> F  quagga/the kernel does not alternate between the two
routes above.

Now I get to my actual questions :)

Does the OSPF RIB get recalculated as a result of each HELLO received?

If the answer to the above question is yes, then is there a possibility
that I could get route flapping between the two possible routes? (I'm
guessing yes)

What is the best way to mitigate this? - the best I can think of is to
give of the links in the loop a higher weighting.

Your help is much appreciated.

Regards

It should not. 

SPF calculations are supposed to occur in case of
topology changes.
